Dharamshala, Himachal Pracdesh
Located in Himachal Pradesh, what most people refer to as Dharamsala is actually Lower Dharamsala. This is where the bus drops you, and from here you can make your way to Mcleodganj, or Upper Dharamsala, which is definitely the more popular destination among tourists. However, Dharamshala itself offers a number of unique sights and experiences of a city life in the hills. The city is the second winter capital of the state of Himachal Pradesh and extremely important from a political standpoint. Although most of the Tibetan population is settled in Mcleodganj, Dharamshala also has a major Tibetan influences and his home to institutes and monasteries. There is the Norbulingka Institute, where you can see artisans making thangka paintings, embroidering and carving food. It now also has a bustling market, shopping malls and some amazing restaurants.
While going from Dharamshala to McLeod, you can see St. John’s church in the wilderness hardly 1 km from the McLeod bus stand. Most of the time it is closed. The 1852 cemetery, wild pine trees and the mild breeze.

Apart from monsoon, any other time of the year is excellent to visit Dharamshala. During April, there’s a nip in the air and the entire mountain blooms red with rhodendron. Summer is sunny with light showers most evenings. During winter, clear blue skies bless the town and reveal a blanket of stars in the night
Located in the foothills of the Himalayas along the convergence of Ganga and Chandrabhaga River, Rishikesh (also called as Hrishikesh) is known for its adventure activities, ancient temples, popular cafes and as the “Yoga Capital of the World”. With whitewater rafting industry growing and varied camping and cafe spots springing up, Rishikesh has grown immensely as a favourite, catering to people with different needs.
Over the years, the tranquil town has become extremely popular as the top spiritual destination in the world, especially after the Beatles association with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi here in the late ’60s. As it lies on the holy banks of river Ganga, Rishikesh has been a hub of Sadhus (saints) with numerous ashrams teaching spirituality.
After spending the morning strolling around Rishikesh we had planned the remainder of the day for river rafting. Something I’ve been to wanting to do ever since I heard about it. And now was the perfect time to do so considering monsoon has just left and the water in the Ganga is not so cold yet pristine.
